What are idioms?
Idioms are a type of figurative language.
Other types of figurative language include metaphors, similes, personification, hyperbole and puns.
An idiom is an expression. The words used in the expression do not relate to the literal meaning of the phrase.
Here are some examples of idioms and their meanings:
|back to square one||starting over|
|spill the beans||tell a secret|
|adding insult to injury||making a bad situation worse|
|don’t judge a book by its cover||don’t judge something by its first appearance|
|feeling under the weather||not feeling well|
|letting someone off the hook||not holding someone responsible for something|
|piece of cake||something that was easy to do|
|cutting corners||not doing something completely to save time or money|
|letting the cat out of the bag||sharing a secret|
|like riding a bike||something you don’t forget how to do|
